Building A Brand – Show Notes & More
Growing a brand in essence is easy, this is often what makes employees convert to entrepreneurs, but the real catch here is mindset. A brand isn’t about ego its about customers, it is about who will benefit from your products, not your brand.
3 Things Consumers Look For
1. Trust: This is the base of everything. You can’t offer something and not follow through with the delivery. If you have trust, you have an opportunity to sell.
2. Value Proposition: You need to look at what the customer identifies as being valuable. It’s a lot easier to give a customer what they are after rather than to sell them something they don’t need.
3. Be the Best at What You Do: People want to know that this product is the best product that they can get. That doesn’t mean it needs to be the best product in the world, it just needs to be the best product in your field of expertise. Think Toyota versus Ferrari. Both sell cars, but the detail in the value proposition, this is what impacts the sale. If you want a million dollar car, Toyota isn’t going to cut it. If you want value and are price-sensitive, Ferrari probably aren’t the right brand for you.
Branding is the afterthought that forms once relationships are built with consumers. The relationships come from trust in your products. Focus on your customers and brands come to life.
